Asbestos exposure typically occurs without
the person exposed being aware of the fibers they constantly inhale.
Asbestos fibers are tiny. Once asbestos fibers are released into the air,
they can remain airborne for a long period of time. All that is needed for asbestos exposure to take place is inhalation
of asbestos fibers.
A person who has fallen ill with an asbestos disease such as mesothelioma may have been exposed to asbestos
fibers at work, for example, at a mechanic's shop, or even at home.
People who do not work with asbestos can nevertheless become exposed to
asbestos if another person in the same household
happens to have asbestos fibers on his or her clothing.
Thus, for example, a stay-at-home wife of someone who works with asbestos can
become exposed to asbestos when she inhales the asbestos fibers on the work clothes of her husband.
People can also become exposed to asbestos simply by working or living in an
area that is close to a facility that handles asbestos products.
